marshmallow catapult - perfect for rainy day fun! Who can launch one farthest? Try and hit the bullseye or in a basket. What objects go farthest: pompoms, mini or regular marshmallows, cotton balls, etc.
Craft Stick Catapult - I made 4 of these in 5 minutes and they work great! You need craft sticks, 4 rubber bands, hot glue or tape, and a bottle cap (I cut apart an egg carton because I didn't have any bottle caps).
In this activity, learners construct their own small catapults using simple materials. Learners follow visual instructions to build their launching device. This activity can be used as a lesson on simple machines, motion/forces or construction.
Might be fun with water soaked sponges as a pioneer day activity- could be a fun scout project to make--Simple Catapults- these are a great construction project and the kids love making the catapult & launching objects.
